The last day in Teneriffa 特纳里夫之行的最后一天

Go back home 回家

sunny 24 °C

Today we had to go back home, go back to the cold Austria. 7 days in Teneriffa was too short for us.

今天我们不得不回家了,回到那天寒地冻的奥地利。7天的特纳里夫之行对我们来说实在太短暂了。

When we arrived Austria, it was snowing, we came back to the winter from the summer within 5 hours flight, oh no...

当我们抵达奥地利的时侯,正下着雪,在短短5个小时的航程中,我们从夏季回到了冬季,哦不……

The seventh day in Teneriffa 特纳里夫之行的第七天

The worst day 最糟糕的一天

all seasons in one day 20 °C

Today was an unlucky day, because the weather forecaster gave us the wrong information, we thought it would be sunny day, and planned to take a long hiking in the north of Teneriffa.

今天有够倒霉,因为天气预报不准,我们以为特纳里夫北部天气不错,所以计划上那爬山。

But actually, when we arrived the destination, the weather changed a lot, at the beginning it was raining, and then was storm. The higher we drove, the colder it was, especially when we almost arrived the top of mountain, it was snowing, oh my god, how unbelievable it was! Finally, considering the wheels of our car were the summer ones, it was very dangerous to drive on the snow, so we had to take another way to go down the mountain.

但事实上,当我们到达目的地的时侯,天气突然变化多端,一开始只是下雨,后来就下大暴雨。我们的车开得越高,气温就越低,尤其是当我们几乎快要到达山顶的时侯,居然下起雪来了,天啊,简直难以置信!最后,考虑到我们的车胎是夏季型的,在雪地上行驶容易打滑很危险,所以只好改道下山。

Our original plan was failed, then we decided to the south of Teneriffa for hiking, and hoped it would be nicer weather there. But unfortunately, when we was starting to hike, it suddenly rained. So our second plan was failed again. How disappoined we were.

我们的最初计划失败了,接着又计划去特纳里夫南部爬山,希望那里的天气会好些。但不幸的是,当我们到的时侯,正要准备出发,突然下起大雨来。第二个计划又失败了,太令人失望了!

Eventually, we had to go back to the hotel. But on the way to the hotel, we wanted to take a lunch first, then we went to Los Cristianos, it was sunny in this city, so we just took an simple sightseeing and walking around after the lunch.

最后,我们只得返回酒店。不过在去酒店之前,得先去吃午饭解决温饱问题,于是我们到了洛斯·克里斯蒂阿诺斯,那里万里晴空,所以午饭后我们在这个城市周围四处简单地逛了下。

100_2312.jpg

North of Teneriffa is much more green than other parts.

特纳里夫北部比该海岛其他地方要绿的多。

100_2322.jpg

100_2324.jpg

100_2334.jpg

From this picture, you could see that how bad the weather was.

从这张像片上,可以看出当时的天气有多糟糕。

100_2337.jpg

The higher we drove, the more snow we found.

我们行使得越高,看到的白雪就越多。

100_23391.jpg

100_2345.jpg

We arrived the foot of the mountain finally.

最后我们到达了山脚下。

100_2350.jpg

100_2356.jpg

Then we came to the south of Teneriffa, and wanted to hike on this mountain. When we was changing the hiking shoes, suddenly it rained, so we had to cancel this plan again.

后来我们去特纳里夫南部,打算爬这座山。当我们刚换好登山鞋的时侯,突然下大雨了,所以只得再次取消计划。

100_23551.jpg

It was a strange plant beside our parking place, very big, but I did not know its name.

在我们的停车处旁,发现了一种很奇特的植物,非常大,但我不知道它叫什么。

100_2361.jpg

In Teneriffa, the fuel was really much more cheaper than Austria.

和奥地利的车油价相比,特纳里夫的价格实在是太便宜了。

100_2368.jpg

We came to Los Cristianos.

我们来到了洛斯·克里斯蒂阿诺斯市。

100_2370.jpg

100_2374.jpg

100_2375.jpg

It was one corner of our restaurant.

我们所在餐馆里的一角。

100_2380.jpg

Spanish rice was really very awful!

西班牙的米饭实在不敢恭维,太难吃了!

100_2380a.jpg

This time the pizza was much more fresh than yesterday.

这次点的批萨比昨天吃的新鲜多了。

100_2383.jpg

When we were eating, we saw an old woman driving this kind of mini motobike for shopping, very interesting.

我们在吃饭的时侯,看到一位老妇人骑着迷你电动车购物,挺有意思的。

On the way to the hotel, we found the top of Teide volcano was covered by the snow.

在回酒店的途中,我们发现泰德火山山顶被白雪覆盖了。

The sixth day in Teneriffa 特纳里夫之行的第六天

Happy birthday to my honey 祝老公生日快乐!

sunny 24 °C

Today was my honey's birthday, so we decided to take an easy day to celebrate his special day. We did not go hiking, did not take any sightseeing either, just stayed in the hotel to have a relaxed day.

今天是我老公的生日,我们决定不去爬山,也不去观光,就呆在酒店里,轻轻松松地庆祝他的特别日子。

This morning, I gave my honey a special gift, he was very surprised, but very happy, and then we went to the swimming pool in the hotel.

早上,我给老公一份特殊的生日礼物,这份礼物使他惊喜万分,随后我们就一起到酒店的游泳池里游泳。

100_2229.jpg

Today the weather was pretty nice, sunny and warm, but not windy, so many people came to swim in the hotel.

今天天气非常好,阳光明媚,而且又没有刮风,所以酒店里很多客人都来游泳。

100_2226.jpg

In the middle of three swimming pools, there is a mini bar which selling some drinks and small foods.

在3个游泳池中间有个迷你酒吧,出售一些酒水饮料和一些小点心。

100_2218.jpg

There are three swimming pools in this hotel, and one is even heated with warm water. So we chose it to swim. It showed the temperature of water was 27 °C, but I did not think so, I felt it was much more colder. Actually at that time I did not want to enter the water, but my honey pulled me down, oh my god, it was too cold for me, and the water was too salty. Finally, we just only swam for a while then came out of the water, because I was not good at swimming,and my honey did not like to swim alone.

酒店里有3个游泳池,只有一个是温水的,所以我们选择了它。该游泳池显示水温为27度,但我并不这么认为,觉得实际水温要低得多。其实当时我不想下水,但是被我老公硬拽下水,我的天啊,太冷了,而且水很咸!最后我们只游了一小会儿就上岸了,因为我游得不好,老公又不想自己一个人游。

After coming out of the water, we lay on the beach chairs and enjoyed the warm sunshine.

上岸后,我们就躺在沙滩椅上晒太阳。

100_2217.jpg

It was very comfortable to take a nap in the sun.

在阳光下打个小盹儿感觉还是很舒服的。

100_2223.jpg

Now there was a dove coming, I gave it some bread and cake to eat.

这时有只鸽子飞过来,我拿了些面包和蛋糕给它吃。

100_2228.jpg

About 5pm, there was not warm sunshine anymore, most of people went back to the rooms. Suddenly, the swimming pools looked much more quiet.

大约下午5点钟,太阳下山了,多数客人都回酒店房间里了,顿时整个游泳池变得格外安静。

100_2230.jpg

100_2236.jpg

After changing the clothes, we went to take dinner.

我们回房换好衣服后,就去吃晚餐。

On the way to the restaurant, we walked along the long beach, the sceneries looked not so bad there.

在去餐馆的途中,我们漫步在长长的海滩上,四周的景色看上去挺不错的。

100_2238.jpg

This is our neighbour hotel, the Parque Santiago IV. It was a bit smaller than ours but still nice.

这是我们隔壁的酒店,帕克·圣地亚哥(4),比我们所住的帕克·圣地亚哥(3)还小一些,但还是很漂亮的。

100_2240.jpg

100_2239.jpg

100_22411.jpg

Here's a five star hotel. It has nice architecture and bright colors.

这是一家五星级酒店,其建筑美丽大方,而且色彩鲜艳。

100_2243.jpg

100_22421.jpg

100_2245.jpg

Finally, we chose a restaurant which faced to the ocean, pretty good location. We thought the food in this restaurant should be delicious, and I hoped to have a good dinner to end my honey's special day, but the end made us too disappointed, because the food was too bad...

最后,我们选择了一家面朝大海的餐馆,其地理位置确实非常的好。我们以为这家餐馆的食物应该也不错,而且我也希望借着美味可口的晚餐来给老公的生日画上完满的句号,可事实上却令我们非常失望,因为这家餐馆的食物实在太糟糕了……

100_22471.jpg

...the fish was over-fried, and the pizza was not fresh. It was the worst dinner we had eaten so far!

……这家餐馆的鱼排炸过头了,而且批萨也不新鲜。这是我们目前所吃过的晚餐中最差劲的一道。

100_2248.jpg

After dinner, on the way to the hotel, we saw a chinese restaurant.

餐后,在回酒店的途中,我们看到了一家中国餐馆。

100_22521.jpg

100_22531.jpg

100_2254.jpg

I liked the beautiful decoration in the shopwindows.

我喜欢橱窗里美丽的装饰品。

100_2607.jpg

We went to a perfume shop, I found the prices were reasonable, especially one of my favorite perfumes, JLO Glow. It was much cheaper than Austria. So my honey wanted to buy it for me as the christmas gift. I was very surprised and happy, because he still could remember I like JLO Glow, really let me so moved.

我们进了一家香水店,发现里面的价格非常合理,尤其是珍妮佛·洛佩兹闪亮之星第一款女性淡香水,这是我最爱的香水之一。这里的价格比奥地利要便宜得多。所以老公将此买下,作为给我的圣诞礼物,没想到他还记得我喜欢这款香水,让我既惊喜又感动。

100_22651.jpg

After buying the perfume, we continued visiting the shopping center, but did not buy anything more.

买完香水后,我们继续逛商业中心,但没有再买其他东西了。

100_2268.jpg

100_2287.jpg

Do you still remember here? We have already introduced it in the first blog in Teneriffa, so I do not want to repeat again. This time, the pictures looked much more nicer than last time, right?

是否还记得这里?我们在特纳里夫之行的第一篇博客里已经提到过了,所以这里就不再重复了。这次拍的音乐喷泉比上次更好看些,对吧?

100_2292.jpg

100_2305.jpg

So, in my honey's special day, except for the dinner, other things all made him very satisfied.

总之,在老公的特别日子里,除了糟糕的晚餐外,其他都令他非常满意。

Happy Birthday, honey, happy everyday!

老公,祝你生日快乐,天天快乐!

The fifth day in Teneriffa 特纳里夫之行的第五天

An interesting and relaxed trip 一次轻松有趣的行程

sunny 24 °C

Today we went to the west of Teneriffa, a small town which is named Los Gigantes. This time, our goal was not for hiking again, but for taking the boat to see the beautiful Atlantic ocean, the lovely dolphins and the famous cliffs in Teneriffa.

今天我们前往特纳里夫海岛的西部,一个名叫洛斯·吉甘特斯的小镇。此行的目的不是爬山,而是乘坐小游船欣赏美丽的大西洋,看看可爱的海豚以及见识下特纳里夫著名的悬崖。

100_1950.jpg

On the way to the harbour, we could see a small side of the cliff on this view point.

在去海港的途中,我们可以从这个景点观望台上看到一小部分悬崖。

100_1955.jpg

It was very difficult to find the parking place around the harbour, so we had to park our car a little far away from the harbour, and then walked there.

在海港周围很难找到停车处,所以我们只好把车停在有点远的地方,然后再走回海港。

In Los Gigantes, there are many shops which selling the tickets of different boats. Sometimes, you can find that some shops have the same boat and the same time, but the prices are not the same, and if you buy the tickets near the harbour, usually can get the cheapest tickets.

在洛斯·吉甘特斯小镇上,有许多商店出售各式游船的船票。有时侯你可以发现,不同的商店,在同一游船和同一时间上的票价各不相同,但如果在海港附近买的话,通常可以买到最便宜的船票。

100_1956.jpg

Now we arrived at the harbour. It was not very big, but had many boats, some were for the visitors, and some were private.

现在我们到达了海港,虽然规模不是很大,却停泊了相当多的船只,有些是游船,有些则是私人船只。

100_1962.jpg

It was the boat which we would take later.

这艘游船就是我们随后要乘坐的。

100_1965.jpg

Sitting on the boat, I was very happy and excited, because it was the first time for me to take this kind of boat, and I would see the dolphins soon, hehe!

坐在船上,我是既开心又激动,因为这是我第一次乘坐这样的小游船,而且很快就能见到可爱的海豚,呵呵!

100_1966.jpg

When our boat was ready to set out, another boat was coming back to the harbour.

当我们的游船即将出发的时侯,另外一艘游船正好入港。

100_1968.jpg

Now our boat already left the harbour, looking back, we could see the beautiful town.

此刻我们的游船已经离港,回头望去,可以看到美丽的小镇。

100_1972.jpg

The speed of the boat was too fast. Looking at my hair, you could imagine that how windy it was.

游船的行使速度非常快,看我的头发,就能想象到当时风有多大了吧!

100_1976.jpg

Driving on the boundless Atlantic ocean, the feeling was pretty nice. The warm sunshine, the blue sky, the clean water, the fresh air, the beautiful sceneries, everything looked so perfect.

行驶在无边无际的大西洋上,感觉非常的好!温暖的阳光、蔚蓝的天空、清澈的海水、新鲜的空气以及美丽的景色,所有的一切看似都是那么的完美。

100_1977.jpg

100_2020.jpg

About half hour later, we found many dolphins. This kind of dolphin was different with the one which we saw often. It was black with the round head. It was pity that I forgot the name.

大约过了半小时,我们发现了海豚。这种海豚和常见到的不同,它是黑色圆头的,可惜我忘了它的学名。

100_2022.jpg

100_2024.jpg

They were dolphin Mama and dolphin baby, they always swam together, very lovely.

这是海豚妈妈和海豚宝宝,它们总是形影不离,可爱极了。

100_2026.jpg

100_2037.jpg

100_2041.jpg

After watching the lovely dolphins, our boat turned back to the town, and went to visit the cliffs.

观看完可爱的海豚后,我们的游船转向驶回小镇,前去欣赏著名的悬崖。

100_2048.jpg

100_2056.jpg

Now our boat stopped here for a while. Each visitor could get a drink and a bag of nuts for free. Besides, the visitors also could jump down to swim.

我们的游船在此逗留片刻,每位游客都可以免费得到一瓶饮料和一包坚果,而且游客还可以下水游泳。

100_2059.jpg

100_2066.jpg

100_2067.jpg

100_20831.jpg

After visiting the cliffs, our boat arrived stopped at a small fish farm. We found another kind of dolphins there, just the normal ones we saw often on TV, the silvery skin with sharp mouth. But these dolphins did not come close to us, so it was difficult for us to take nice pictures for them.

观赏完悬崖后,我们的游船到了一个小渔场。那里我们发现了另外一种海豚,就是电视上常见到的那种普通海豚,银白色的皮肤,尖尖的嘴巴。可是这些海豚都不愿意靠近我们,所以很难给它们拍照。

100_2084.jpg

100_2088.jpg

100_2093.jpg

It was the time to finish this interesting trip on the boat, totally 2 hours. Now we came back to the harbour.

有趣的游船之行结束了,总共2小时,现在返回海港。

100_2094.jpg

Thereafter, we went to visit the famous special landscape, Masca.

100_2097.jpg

100_2099.jpg

100_2107.jpg

100_2115.jpg

The road to Masca is very small, has many many curves and it's feeling quite adventurous to go there!

通往马斯卡的山路非常窄小,而且曲曲折折,让人感觉似乎要到达那里是相当危险的。

100_2116.jpg

100_2120.jpg

Masca consists just of a few houses, all around are mountains with a big canyon in the middle.

整个马斯卡地貌是由一些房屋以及周围所有的山峰组合而成,而这些山峰的正中间有个巨大的峡谷。

100_2123.jpg

100_2126.jpg

100_2137.jpg

100_2139.jpg

Though Masca is quite high up, the weather was so very nice and warm there.

尽管马斯卡地势很高,但那里的气温却一点也不冷。

100_2140.jpg

100_2144.jpg

100_2149.jpg

100_2156.jpg

After visiting the Masca, we went to another small town, Los Garachicos.

观赏完马斯卡地貌后,我们去了一个名叫洛斯·嘎拉芝哥斯的小镇。

100_2159.jpg

It's located at the northern coast of Teneriffa.

We took the dinner in this town. I ordered the delicious rabbit meat again, and my honey ordered a beef steak.

100_1735.jpg

100_1742.jpg

这块岩石美名其曰“神之指”。

100_1757.jpg

100_1763.jpg

Most people just would stay at the view point, but we took a short, 2 hours hike around in this special area, which is full of rocks and the remains of volcano eruptions.

多数游客只是在观望台欣赏下火山爆发后的遗迹和各式岩石,之后便离去,而我们却选择为时2个小时简短的徒步之旅,更好地欣赏这块神奇之土。

100_1764.jpg

100_1767.jpg

100_1775.jpg

My honey really loves climbing so much. When he saw the small cliff, he still wanted to try to climb for a while, even without the climbing shoes, just liked a kid, hehe...

我老公真的是个攀岩狂,当他看到这座小崖壁的时侯,即便没有穿上攀岩鞋,他还是想试着攀一小会儿过把瘾,真像个孩子,呵呵……

100_1777.jpg

……看他攀得多起劲啊,不是么?!

100_1785.jpg

100_1787.jpg

Different types of rocks everywhere!

这里到处都是各式各样的岩石!

100_1792.jpg

100_1794.jpg

100_1795.jpg

100_1809.jpg

100_1810.jpg

It is the top of Teide. Visitors can take the cable car to visit the top, but we did not do so.

这是泰德火山的顶峰,游客可以通过乘坐缆车观看顶峰,但我们没有乘坐。

100_1816.jpg

Here could see the shape of flowing lava.

这里可以看到当年流动岩浆的形状。

100_1817.jpg

100_1822.jpg

100_1832.jpg

100_1836.jpg

100_1840.jpg

100_1842.jpg

100_1843.jpg

100_1847.jpg

100_1849.jpg

100_1857.jpg

100_1859.jpg

100_1861.jpg

100_1865.jpg

100_1867.jpg

100_1868.jpg

100_1871.jpg

100_1875.jpg

Now we started taking the steepest part of the mountain. It was also the last part of the routes to reach the end of this hiking.

现在我们开始走向全程最陡峭路段,也是通向终点的最后一部分路段。

100_1884.jpg

100_1885.jpg

100_1891.jpg

Leaving the volcano Teide, we drove to the north...

离开泰德火山后,我们驾车一路向北走……

100_1892.jpg

...and then we found the green desert, looked like on the moon. So we stopped and took some pictures for the special landscape.

……然后我们发现一片绿色沙漠,看上去像是到了月球。于是我们就停下车,为这片奇特地貌拍几张像片。

100_1893.jpg

100_1895.jpg

100_1896.jpg

Many movies have been shot in this area, as it looks nearly like being in another world, such as planet Mars.

据说许多影片都在这里拍摄,正因为这里看上去就像另外一个世界,比如火星。

100_1897.jpg

100_1939.jpg

Then we drove down the mountain area again on the northern part of the island, to go to the small town of La Orotava.

接着我们在海岛的北部一路开下山,前往一个名叫拉·欧柔塔瓦的小镇。

There they have some old villas, one of them is the "Casa de los Balcones" - a house with many balconies.

100_1920.jpg

100_1924.jpg

100_1926.jpg

100_1933.jpg

100_1935.jpg

Unfortunately access to the interior rooms has already been closed. So we only could visit the lower floor, which looked like a shopping area for wine, pictures and other souvenirs.

遗憾的是,我们去的时侯,别墅内部的房间已经对外关闭了,所以我们只能参观底楼,该底楼看上去就像是个购物区,出售一些葡萄酒、油画以及其他纪念品。

100_1936.jpg

100_1937.jpg

So this is how traditional clothes on the Canary Islands look like.

这是卡纳利小岛居民的传统服饰。

100_1938.jpg

100_1942.jpg

Thereafter we went to the city Puerto de la Cruz to take dinner.

接着我们前往一个名叫普伊托·德·拉·克鲁斯的城市里吃晚餐。

The second and third day in Teneriffa 特纳里夫之行的第二、三天

Hiking in a different world 奇特世界之旅

semi-overcast 23 °C

Today we went to the east of Teneriffa for hiking. The destination was a natural park, Malpaís de Güimar. The reason why we chose it was the landscape looking completely different with Austria, and the plants were very strange.

今天我们去特纳里夫海岛的东部进行徒步之旅。此行的目的地是个名叫马尔帕伊斯·德·桂玛的自然公园。我们之所以选它,是因为那里的地形地貌和奥地利截然不同,而且那里的植物也非常奇特。

100_15531.jpg

On the early morning, after getting up, we could see the quiet street from our balcony.

一早起床,我们可以从阳台上看到宁静的街道。

100_15561.jpg

On the third day in Teneriffa, we just only took an easy day to have a good rest in the hotel, because the first two days were too tired, we needed save more energy for tomorrow's hiking. We slept as long as possible, and only went out to take lunch for a while, so we did not take many pictures.

特纳里夫之行的第三天,我们只是在酒店里放松地度过,因为头两天的活动行程让我们都感觉有些疲惫,所以需要为明天的登山养精蓄锐。我们尽可能地睡足睡饱,只有午餐的时侯出门了一会儿,所以这天我们没有多拍像片。
